Wargaming Week 17/09/18

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 10th through to the 16th of September. BLOG STUFF This week’s post saw a triumphant return to battle reports with a Humvee ambush in Bazistan. Turns out, people really like battle reports. There is always a little bit of stress when writing and then running games at the club, always a concern that I’ve written something no one Hobby, wants to play. Luckily, this game was an absolute banger – being able to have two players on each side and run it as a DM meant it was much easier to introduce new players to the game and get the tension up between the different elements. Using a double sized board also really helped to improve the spectacle as well.  Having managed to get a game in, I’m really looking forward to running something else in a few weeks. NEWS First up we have some more MDF buildings. Now, I’m stuck firmly in the Middle East/East Africa until I’ve painted up all the buildings I have but I couldn’t help b

Wargaming Week 10/09/2018

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 3rd through to the 9th of September. BLOG STUFF Last week saw two posts! Wednesday’s post on the new stowage available from Spectre was completely unplanned – I wasn’t expecting the new kit to arrive on time. However, seeing as I was about to stick some of it onto my new vehicle, I thought I might as well quickly get something written about it. The main post though was a short one looking at the latest Humvee to be added to the project. Despite the minor problems I mentioned, I’m really happy with getting this vehicle ready and on the table. NEWS This week has been a little quieter than the last couple. First up, the painter currently working on the White Dragon Miniatures Quad Bikes has been teasing some more and shown off one of the vehicles WIP. They are looking really good and I’m now feeling incredibly bad about not painting my guys up. Spectre continues to tease. This week, they have shown off another weapon system

Wargaming Week 27/08/18

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 20th through to the 26th of August. BLOG STUFF This week’s post was all about the GRU OPERATIVES currently available from Spectre. I really like this range although the promise of new figures were just the kick I needed to get them finished off. I’m definitely going to plan some more missions using these guys. The older figures I think could do with a repaint – it’s a nice feeling to see how much I’ve improved since I first painted them in 2015 (back when my photo taking was even worse). Fingers crossed I can tweak the paint jobs without stripping them entirely NEWS Special Artisan Service Miniatures now has a UK stockist in the form of Infamous JT. You can find the various SASM products at their site. For people looking for some Chinese focused figures, there is currently a kickstarter running. Offering a lot of CAD designed female PLA forces, this could be an interesting project. Not for me (seeing as I’m not worki

Wargaming Week 20/08/18

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 13th through to the 19th of July. BLOG STUFF This week’s post was another part of Building A Force, this time looking at support for Irregular Forces. This articles are really handy on weeks when I’m busier than usual so expect a few more before the end of the year. NEWS The Assault Group this week released a new range. Well, a new range for them. Consisting of three sets (and two freebies), this range appears (based on comments on the news post) to be a re-release of a previous range. Unusually for TAG, these are sculpted by eBob and stand a little smaller than most modern figures. However, they present an alternative option for players wanting to play the Chinese for the mid 2000s. Picture from Dwartist’s Painting Blog The White Dragon Miniatures quad bikes are getting closer. Dwartist has received their quads and will soon be working his magic on them. As you can see in the picture, and as you’d expect from the Courage in Conta
